Circle Graph Analysis and Creation A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words Print this page and use it to complete the lesson. Circle Graphs -- Analysis of Data: 1. Go to http://www.census.gov/statab/www/img/expends.gif (http://www.census.gov/statab/www/img/expends.gif) 2. Analyze the circle graph and answer these questions: What percent of expenditures were spent on food in 1992? What percent of expenditures were spent on personal insurance and pensions in 1992? What was the average total expenditures in 1992? What does "average total expenditure" mean? On average, how much money was spent by the average consumer on housing in 1992? Circle Graphs -- Creation: 1. Go to http://www.state.gov/www/background_notes/united_nations_0997_bgn.html (http://www.state.gov/www/background_notes/united_nations_0997_bgn.html) 2. Scroll down to "Financing" under the "Profile" section. 3. Create 2 circle graphs: General budget for the calendar year 1996 United States share of the budget for 1996 4. Calculate the percentage share for the United States for each category. For example: The total budget = \$12.8 billion and the U.S. share = \$2.8 billion. The U.S. share is 21.9%. 5. Is the U.S. percentage the same for any other categories? If so, which ones? If not, why not? 6. Why is the United States responsible for such a large percentage of the United Nation's budget?
